Start menu programs missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • After a normal boot,  all the programs on the All programs button are gone.  With the exception of the default Games.

    In addition,  the windows defender program now states it can not start and is not installed.

    All files,  and programs seem to be installed and there.   In addition  all the desktop icons are grayed out.

    I tired system restore,  and all my restore points are gone,  with the exception of the last install of updates yesterday!
